Premiere: Rambal Cochet – Thrash to Treasure


A proggy trance affair on space•lab.

The waters were crystal clear and calm. The weather had been kind to them; what a perfect day to explore the ocean. Below the surface, a whole other world awaited them: schools of brightly coloured fish darted in their masses between the vibrant coral, kelp and anemones that dotted the seabed, while turtles effortlessly glided through the water around them. If only they could live here amongst the sea life they thought to themselves – things would be so much simpler.


For their fourth outing, Birmingham-born, Bristol-based imprint space•lab are bringing Rambal Cochet into the fold. Perfectly placed for the label’s wiggly groove-driven output, the Ukrainian producer – who also makes music under the alias Volta Cab – serves up four slices of psychedelic progressive trance. Laced with spaced-out atmospheres and propelled by rolling drum patterns and subaquatic acid lines, Galatians Syndrome is one for the heads down dancers.
